25 Outdoor Summer Activities for KIDS!


My kids are OUT OF SCHOOL!!!!  Are yours? (I hope so…)  We are VERY ready for summer.  Especially a little break from a rigid routine…….because lazy mornings, lots of sunshine, and a little spontaneity is exactly what we need around here.  And let’s be honest, I was really ready for a little break from the Pick Up/Drop Off lane at the school.  Egads….that line of cars drives me nuts!


Anyway, I was just gathering ideas of outdoor activities I could do with my kids…..and I found some really fun stuff!  And most things don’t cost much, if anything, at all.


Need some ideas too??
